of a woman he first met in elementary school. like every campaign that cross swords with ronald reagan, chicago's arrogance blew up in their face. the question is whether barack obama will suffer the same fate as governor pat brown and president jim my carter. the answer to that question is anyone's guess. >> joe, when you write i picture clive owen and "love actually" when he's typing on the twirt. >> actually he's hunched over a computer. >> it's an ascot. >> just that whole scenic thing. >> do you have a pipe? >> good column. >> thank you. we would the big question before, mike, whether mitt romney was up to it before the debate. it was a fascinating question. can this guy that saved and turn around other organizations, can he not save himself? the great question being asked by democrats now, did we buy into something that wasn't what we thought we got? can he rise to the challenge? i personal think barack obama is going to answer the bell and do very well. >> definitely. >> i think the big problem is they were so arrogant, the entire operation, toward mitt romney. >> no doubt. >> n
